Updates to Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip

  • Ready to hit the gym after work? Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip has got your back. Based on the well-received Tazon 6 FM from Puma, this workout shoe looks decent enough to pass as casual footwear but also packs technologies to help you throw down at the gym. A heather fabric makes up the upper with synthetic overlays that deliver a secure foothold.
  • The sole unit is equipped with an ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam technology, which provides lightweight protection against impact. The underside is lined with rubber to heighten durability.

Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip size and fit

The Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip caters to the needs of male athletes. It comes in US sizes 7 to 13 and only in a D - Medium width profile. Keeping the fit snug is the lacing system and the plush interior.

Outsole

Protecting the bottom of the Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip is a rubber outsole. Its sticky nature allows it to grip slick gym floors while the tread pattern enhances traction on outdoor surfaces. The compound is durable and prevents early degradation of the midsole unit.

Midsole

This training shoe from Puma employs an EVA heel pod. This element provides shock absorption and cushioning to keep the foot protected during heel strike.

A thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) shank is used under the arch area. This rigid component protects the arch against excessive twisting and even overly stretching.

Inside the trainer is the Softfoam sockliner. This full-length cushioning insole provides a comfortable footbed and also prevents the foot from sliding inside the shoe.

Upper

The upper of the Puma Tazon 6 Heather Rip uses a heather fabric. This material is reinforced with synthetic overlays in key areas to protect against abrasion and enhance the structural integrity of the upper.

The footgear uses a traditional lace-up structure to aid in fit adjustment. The rear section is lightly cushioned to provide additional comfort, snugness, and protection against skin irritation.
